    Sess, invest in a dictionary and thesaurus. Then you can be just like all the other boardies on these non-misc. threads wink.gif

    *tuts* It means....

    Curmudgeonly - An ill-tempered person full of resentment and stubborn notions.

    Codger - Slang for an old person.

    And I can't believe people are still whinging about this title stuff!..

    Your books are behind the position of being a professor? How does that work?

    He was trying to sound eloquent. ?Unfortunately for him, his pathetic attempt in the use of more verbose prose was laughably poor.

    Watch someone point out that there are problems with the above statements.

    according to the thesaurus a Professorship is a chair not a professor. And a Lexicon is a Dictionary.

    .?.?.?I really should find a forehead-slapping emoticon and install it.

    A professorship is a chair held by a professor. ?If you'd bothered to use that fancy lexicon of yours, you might have found a definition similar to this one for chair:
    2. A seat of office, authority, or dignity, such as that of a bishop.
    ? ? a. An office or position of authority, such as a professorship.
    ? ? b. A person who holds an office or a position of authority, such as one who presides over a meeting or administers a department of instruction at a college; a chairperson.

    This thread has degenerated beyond the boundaries of stupidity. Quite entertaining though.

    That generally happens when a person tries to misuse a thesaurus and not take into account multiple definitions may apply within the synonyms given. ?One of the first things they taught us way back in the days of elementary grade-school was not to just throw around words out of a thesaurus because, to quote, "you keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means." ?Education is funny like that, isn't it? ?Sess, you picked a really bad place to try to exercise lexiphanicism. ?It's the difference between me calling your attempt malapropos and inept. ?They both share a common idea, but one is much more fitting because of a further definitional element, and you know what? ?I bet you a thesaurus will probably list them as being synonymous. ?But you left it in the position of a professor, so I'll wait for it to get fired (unless it's on tenure) for you to get it back before expounding on that idea any further so you can verify for yourself.

    You shouldn't plagiarize custom member titles.

    No, see, it's behind the position of a professor. Whatever that means.

    Wow, this thread REALLY got off topic, eh?

    Bringing it back to what it was originaly, I'd have to say; who really cares if you have a little title under your picture or not? If you need a couple words below your pic in order to feel like you matter, then you've got problems!

    I'm going to reiterate the above question while bumping this in hopes that something amusing will come of it.
